Recieved the error: 'Your screenshot could not be saved. You don't have permission to save files in the location where screenshots are stored.' with OS X Yosemite.
I opened terminal and tried directing the screenshots to save on my desktop:
Brigittes-Air:~ eggsalad$ defaults read com.apple.screencapture location
2017-01-06 03:04:47.765 defaults[17729:1947540]
The domain/default pair of (com.apple.screencapture, location) does not exist
So I tried writing and:
Brigittes-Air:~ eggsalad$ defaults write com.apple.screencapture location ~/Desktop
2017-01-06 03:05:08.652 defaults[17742:1948451] Could not write domain com.apple.screencapture; exiting
I'm not sure where the screenshots are being stored if the location does not exist. Ideas?
I ran something else and got a different response, but defaults are still unchanged.
Brigittes-Air:~ eggsalad$ defaults write com.apple.screencapture location/Users/eggsalad/Desktop killall SystemUIServer
2017-01-06 03:22:35.444 defaults[18265:2001767] Unexpected argument SystemUIServer; leaving defaults unchanged.
